Walman, already has tested out becuase he was on the ice today. It's possible Tarasenko and Perunovich could test out tomorrow. Although that doesn't necessarily mean they would play right away.
The fans in the stands seem to really, really enjoy Country Roads.
Not necessarily. After re-reasing the revised protocols, there's one knid of test that requires only a single negative resutl, and another that requires two.
It would be nice to see more fans wearing masks, that's for sure. But how exactly do you enforce it. And keep in mind, too, it's up to the city health department to decide how many fans should be in attendance at Enterprise. If the health dept. thinks that half capacity makes for a safer environment, they will do so.
The only potential need I see - and we've talked about this many times - is a top 4 defenseman. If you think Mikkola is a top 4 defenseman, I think you'r OK. If you don't, then you start doing some shopping. The trade deadline isn't until March 21 - a lot can happen between now and then.
When it comes down to it, the final call I believe is up to the NHL - in consultattion of course with the teams and also in consideration of local health guidelines. As we sit here right now, Colorado and Minnesota have only three games in hand on the Blues, which isn't all that abnormal for this tiime of the year.
It was a pleasant surprise to see you in Glendale, I can't lie about that. But I'm good, thanks.
Klngberg is a more intriguing trade possibility than Chychrun. But I don't know ifi I want to trade Tarasenko straiight up for him as we sit here right now. I'd need something else.
I think it's always been Tarasenko that wanted the trade, not Armstrong. Icould be wrong, but I don't think Armstrong is actively shopping him. As for an extension, I think I wait and see how the season plays out before I broach that subject.
Don't think I can argue with any of your points.
I'm sure they'll have some kind of recognition for Dunn. He did after all help them win a Cup.
Although I haven't done any lately, I frequently attend or listen in on the opposing team's press sessions. But they do frequently overlap with the Blues' sessions or Blues practices.
To be honest, untiil relativily recently - maybe within the last month, I really didn't pay much attention to the standings period. Too early in the season. Of course that's chaned now that we're approaching midseason. But I'm still not paying too much attention to points percentage, abd won't until it becomes apparent that all the teams won't reach 82 games,
I think it was a mistake to postpone games based on less than full capacity. The experience with COVID has been 1.) That it's been unpredictable; 2.) It often gets worse before it gets better. I would have played the games when you could - no matter how many fans are in the stands. Instead, the league is paintng itself into a corner in terms of being able to reschedule games..
Vaguely. I think it was over a year ago.
Maybe they want to look at some other players that have been working on their games and developiing, figuring they know what MacEachern can do and bring to the table.
